NKorea warns of military action against SKorea

NKorea warns of military action against SKorea.

NKorea is desperate and hungry.  Their people are slowly starving.  If they strike the south we are obligated to respond.

So far, Obama has done nothing to mitigate this issue.  Perhaps he will leave our southern ally to fend for themselves?  This would be catastrophic, sending a message to our other allies that we must not be counted on to honor our commitments. 

Combine the above link with THIS story.  North Korea is flagrantly violating the rules it agreed to live by.  Why now?

They do it now because they believe the US is weekend and has no resolve to handle the issue.  They have watched Obama for a few months and feel he is not willing to curb their behavior.  They do not fear the UN.  They will take this far enough until they get what they want, perhaps more food or other material concessions.

Smart power at work.

    What the hell? Obama has told South Korea and Japan that US Defence is on their side. He’s not “done nothing”. He’s not Bush, and so he hasn’t destroyed N.Korea already, true. But he’s said exactly who he’s standing side by side with.

    Like I said…he has done nothing. Just words, which Obama is good at. There is no action. He talks about going to the UN. Last time I checked the UN could not break up a pillow fight.

    The bottom line, NKorea is making moves now because they want something and they KNOW Obama is weak enough to give it to them. They do not fear him and view his administration as weak.

    Your comment on BUSH is loltastic. NKorea was in a box on the BUSH administration due to the proactive measures that administration took to wall them off. They engaged them diplomatically, kept up pressure by using diplomatic stand in (China, Japan, Russia)

    The BUSH admin was not great on Asian policy however, that point seems to be up for debate. The Obama administration as recently as Feb ridiculed at the idea of the Bush admin on a worst case approach to NKorea’s intent on developing weapons grade uranium (whoops), while at the same time adopted the broad approach of the Bush admin??????
